The McInnis Cement board of directors announced the appointment of Baudouin Nizet to the position of president and chief executive officer of the company, effective immediately. Nizet succeeds Jean Moreau, who served as the interim president and CEO since August 2018.
Nizet has a long track record in the cement industry, including working at CRH Canada/Holcim Canada as senior vice president for Quebec and the Atlantic Region from 2006 to 2013 in Montreal, then in Toronto as president and chief executive officer from 2013 to 2017.
Until recently, he was senior vice president at Stuart Olson Building Group, a large construction company based in Calgary. In addition to serving as a director of the Cement Association of Canada for several years, he also served until 2017 as vice chair of the board of directors of the Canada Green Building Council.
The McInnis Cement board of directors is convinced that Nizet will be able to lead McInnis through its next growth stages, while enhancing our corporate vision of “producing quality cements in a sustainable, profitable and responsible manner.”
McInnis also confirmed the appointment of Alex Wojciechowski as chief operating officer. With more than 30 years of experience as a manager in the cement industry in Canada and in the United States, Wojciechowski has held various positions ranging from maintenance manager to plant manager to industrial manager. His expertise covers both cement operations and constructing and commissioning industrial equipment investment projects.
